Well, this is going to be quite a controversial post after Melanoma Monday, but a new study says that the benefit of sun exposure outweighs the risk of sun exposure.
The benefit includes lower blood pressure. That outweighs skin cancer, according to this study.
“We suspect that the benefits to heart health of sunlight will outweigh the risk of skin cancer. The work we have done provides a mechanism that might account for this, and also explains why dietary vitamin D supplements alone will not be able to compensate for lack of sunlight.”
